Ask @RaeHachtonYA:

What are you doing these days? working on Evermore? *-*

a s t r a
Girl, don't you be following me places? LOL! I am editing Pretty in Black and Black Satin. And I will soon be rewriting Raven in the Grave. and THEN I get to rewrite Evermore. I've got the twists and turns ALLLLLLL planned out for that book. *evil-grin*
Crap. Now I have a headache. Thinking about that plot gives me a MAJOR headache. It's so twisted and awesome. I had to map it out though because it's complicated. I gotta make it read easy though.
If I survive this I might get to write MOOOOORE books and torture myself some more. hahahaha.

Can you prefer some more books of the same genre as yours ?

You know, I haven't been reading as much as I would like to because *ALL* I've been doing lately is writing. But when you asked this question, only ONE book came to mind and that's because IT IS FLIPPING AMAZING, SOOOO AMAZING THAT I THINK PRETTY IN BLACK AND THIS BOOK SHOULD GET MARRIED.
My Boyfriend is a Zombie.
GO REEEEEAD this book! Elita Daniels is my book girlfriend and she is an Amazing Writer. OMG. She writes in such a vivid and beautiful way, in a way that I wish *I* could write, and this is WHY I love it. It is SUCH an amazing story. You won't be disappointed.

When are the times when you are stuck in a writer's block & how you get out of it? I need advice. New in writing.

Hey! I'd be happy to answer this for you. I wrote down some ideas and thoughts but it wouldn't allow me to paste all of it here, so I just answered this same question on Goodreads and I am now linking you over there for the answer!

As u said all the characters are some way or the other your acquaintances. Then is Ellie one too? Is it you? Or totally imaginary?

Oshi Agarwal
Ellie is like myself in a lot of ways, and then again, she isn't; she's her own person. She and I do have a lot in common, but she is far cooler than I am. I've been building her character for a long time now (about 5 years) and the more time I spend with her, the more things about her I learn. Her voice is one of the strongest, probably stronger than Marcus's. (He's the one I'm still trying to learn more things about.)
Once I started asking her questions, she began talking and her character became more and more real. She isn't really inspired by or based on anyone I know in real life. She's fictional. But yes, if I had to guess, in a lot of ways, she's a reflection of myself, both who I was at her age, and also who I wanted to be.
Sometimes I take my characters shopping. I wanna know what they wear, what music they listen to, and all of that. Marcus and I will have to spend more time together. I know less about him than any of my other characters and he's always doing stuff on the page that surprises me.

I ♥ Marcus! he's the hottest vampire EVER! when can I read Evermore? I cant wait any longer. I read pretty in black 5 times lol post me a chapter from the book and make me the happiest :D

*!!* I am working on it :) I know that it's taking FOREVER and that I'm driving my readers crazy (I really don't mean to, I promise!). I just wanna have the best possible books for you to read. I'm rewriting them because I have better ideas, AND there will be MOOOORE Marcus scenes/chapters!
I would love to post a chapter, but I can't because I'm not done with the book yet. But I'm pretty sure I did post a small clip on my blog here (It's not that good yet, but I posted it last year anyways. It'll read 10x as better in the finished book)

Who is your fave character in ur on any other book other than the protagonists and why?

Oshi Agarwal
Um, my favorite character besides the protagonist in one of *my* books? I think that's what you asked. If not, you can ask me again and I'll answer.
Michael Corbin. He's also very sexy and has a great personality and is Marcus's best friend (and has a crush on him at same time). Michael seriously needs his own book.
I would've answered this question by saying Vorigan is my favorite character, but you haven't met him yet :D He's new.

So u had a DECLAN in your life too? I bet u r living a pretty interesting life.

Oshi Agarwal
Oh, well yeah. Declan is based on a guy I knew too. haha. All the guys in my books are inspired by guys I either once dated or knew, lol. Every single one of them except for Marcus. I invented him myself. Well, mostly. I mean, there is a story behind that. A year before I began writing PIB I was in a record store buying albums and I saw a guy that looks EXACTLY like Marcus. We spoke briefly and I was in a freaking daze over it, could barely think, right? He was super charming, his smile made me dizzy and weak kneed. It was ridiculous my reactions to this guy LOL. So, I'm pretty sure that subconsciously I was thinking about him when I wrote Marcus's character.
No, the guy in the record store surfing through albums and I didn't date because those were back in my SUPER socially awkward days when I wouldn't've been able to string together coherent sentences. Such a shame.
I've known both good & bad guys. One so bad that I wouldn't even be able to breathe if I tried writing about that one, and I probably never ever will because NO ONE needs to meet him ever.

What is your most played song?

Ugh. I'm trying soooo hard right now not to listen to Forbidden Love by Abel Korzeniowski because it's from the Romeo and Juliet soundtrack. The whole album is AMAZING. And anyone who knows me knows that Romeo and Juliet is my FAVORITE STORY EVER. And if you've been paying attention (ahem!) I have a Romeo and Juliet retelling on the back burner that I will return to after I finish the Pretty in Black series and Eternally.
Yep, I'm going Shakespearen! And, crap! I'm listening to First Kiss off this soundtrack and now my heart feels like it's being shred apart.

I don't know if I should ask u that but how was HE like Walter?

They have similar personalities. Know how in Black Satin, Walter kept making remarks to Ellie about Marcus every chance he got, even in playful situations when Felicity was trying to lighten the mood? And you could tell he was doing it because he was hurting on the inside? HE was (still sorta is) like that. He can be mature at times but then really immature and woe is me at other times. Both the character and HIM. And just like Walter and Ellie are, we are about a year and a few months apart in age. I'm the older one.
There are probably more examples, I am sure. Especially in the newer version of the books. Also, the whole fighting thing (scene where he went a little crazy and beat up Declan) and the rebel thing where he doesn't like to follow authority.
Walter has this soft, vulnerable side that he likes to keep hidden (so does HE) and I think this is really going to come across better in the new books.

Do you love or like someone....like in real life? Not Marcus orWalter 😛

Oshi Agarwal
Haha! Good idea to make that distinction. To be honest, yes, I do. I'm still in love with a former boyfriend that I can't get over. Sad, (I guess) but true. My heart still does that whole squeezing thing where blood rushes in and out painfully, and then my throat constricts and I can't breathe, when someone mentions his name or when I think about him the way I'm doing right now.
And, he's more of a Walter than a Marcus. In fact, I think Walter's entire character might've been inspired by this guy, hair and eye color and birthday included.

Post a picture of your favorite outfit!

This is actually a picture of Ellie's outift. I think she got this one for her birthday. Pink, y'know, is her favorite color, and of course she bought both cardigan sweaters because she couldn't choose between them. But this is an example of her style :) She has more pictures and I'll share all of those later. Because yes, I most definitely take my characters shopping for clothes and accessories before writing the book. Clothes are uber important to me and I do describe them. I like knowing what characters wear! She wears the skull cardigans as school casual and then removes it and replaces it with the black blazer for a more sophisticated look. Same with the shoes which she swaps for the boots.

sure :D and Yea I agree! social media sites are always changing their idiotic ways and sometimes the changes aren't even near to being "nice" >.> Like take facebook for example. For me their emoji-ish like button is totally useless. Some people don't even use it. ._.

a s t r a
Yeah, I saw that button. SMH. Why can't a good thing just ever be that, a really good thing, you know? We don't need a new update every 6-8 weeks. It's like they all get bored and just start messing with things for amusement. I dunno. it's cray.

Awh naw I'm not on Insta but I can certainly be there *o* Just command be and I'll be at your service!

a s t r a
Lol! I do Insta here and there. It's sorta fun. But I wish all these social media sites wouldn't keep changing their rules or whatever because now I don't think my followers can even see my messages and posts most of the time. Bummer. But yeah, if you decide to gram it up, you can find me on there (:
